Berkeley Students & Faculty Protest Energy Grant.

BP's half-billion dollar grant to set up alternative fuels laboratories at UC Berkeley and the University of Illinois is being met with protests and derision by students and faculty.

The goal of the labs is to develop clean, sustainable sources of energy and reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. But because it's BP that's putting up the money, many in the Berkelely university community are crying foul.
